    It's not my maf stalling me

    Ok story goes- my 2004 Audi a4 1.8t was stalling when idle and I couldn't drive it at all. I unplugged the maf and it was ok on idle and I could drive. Therefore it led me to believe I had a faulty maf. I ordered a new one and it turned up today. So I got the old one out and put the new one in and plugged the electrics into it expecting to start the car and it be fine. But nope it does exactly the same as before just stalls on me so I unplugged it and started the car again and its fine so if it's not my maf what is it?

    Have you had your car scanned, might give you a better idea where to look, does it stall straight away at idle or is it lumpy and then stalls?? maybe crankcase breather valve there is a recent thread about it, helped me out massively when i had a really lumpy idle, and saved me a fortune, these are a really commen fault on 1.8t's

    I know it's a cliche, but a VCDS scan really is the first place to start.

    Is the new MAF a genuine VAG part? If it's aftermarket then there's the problem.

    scan it first...... theres been a few on here recently with crankcase breathers causing this sort of issue, but there also the throtle body cleaning and resetting which are all simple jobs and not to pricey
